.s. flag. the funding would be granted to the puerto rico elections commission to conduct objective voter education and a vote on options that would resolve puerto rico's future political status. key congressional leaders in the house and the senate, republican and democrat alike, have already issued statements of support for the president's action, calling it an appropriate response to the local referendum. . my constituents may not have a vote in a government that makes national laws, but they do have a voice and they make that voice heard loud and clear in november. a budget reflects one's priorities and values. i support the president's budget because it shows respect for the democratically express the aspirations of the u.s. citizens that reside in puerto rico and it demonstrates a clear desire to move forward on this complex but critical issue. as the budget request states, the federally sponsored vote is to be one that would result for puerto rico's political status. the only way to resolve the status is through statehood or national sovereignty. puerto rico cannot resolve its stat
hope not. i believe that the people, the american people spoke eloquently in election. that is the hiscttee voted 70% for the democrat. that opens -- perhaps immigration reform was an issue whose time had come. that's why will have an immigration bill. 70% of hispanics voted democratic but it wasn't that they had a change of heart or a change of mind. it's that they had a clear picture. the fog faded from how important this issue was too many people in our country. and i feel very confident about how we go forward on the immigration bill. i commend the a to senators for the work they did. of course, it's a compromise. when i change things? of course, i do think that's what a compromise is about. i'm proud of the pashtuns are recalling the gang of eight? i don't know. bipartisan team in the house that were for democrats, for republicans have been working on this issue for longtime and their proposals are very much like what had been in the senate. so we're pretty happy about the place that it is. don't get me wrong. it's not ago that i would have written. it's not somet
members who voted the other way today and perhaps in the next election to challenge them. bring the issue forward to the american people. this is worth the fight. we have got to stand up to bring sensible gun safety to america. god forbid what tomorrow's victims will be, but we know they will be there. we have to do everything we can to spare another family from this agree. thank you. let me salute all of my andeagues, particularly joe the families who have lit a candle. that is a hard, hard thing to do when you go through what they went through. you do not want to get out of bed, let alone come here and argue truth to power, which you have done. it will not be forgotten. it will be helpful. mistruth, brute, political force won out over what is right. america will be a less safe place because of it. i say to the families, i say to the american people, many cannot understand what is happening here in this capital. don't give up faith. things change quickly in washington. they have changed for gay marriage. they are changing for immigration. they will change for gun safety sooner than you t
words wrong. before you walk out on the stage. he lost the election when he ran for governor two years later and did everything murphy is said. dwight eisenhower with robert montgomery. more importantly murphy who is also an officer had another protÉge at his famous ronald reagan. everything that reagan did, whether it's the reagan democrats, britain's use of media, everything he did he learn from george murphy, but he did it much better. murphy tutored reagan. reagan intern tutored charlton heston and the have the final person in that grouping would be arnold schwarzenegger who took media a step further, showing you could use 24/7 media which pushed aside as insignificant. he said was important as people who are bored with politics, more than 50% of the elect are at in presidential elections in something like 60% to 70% in gubernatorial elections don't care about politics. if i go on these shows and the reason they don't care about politics to the league of women voters to survey people who don't vote and find out why you don't vote. most are women and the number one reason is they d
is a very thorny problem for harry reid. in pass elections he run cam panes that very much focused on his very pro-gun stance. out in nevada it is a very important issue there. now that this is coming up, and as you pointed out in the your invery we're talking about the biggest changes to gun control legislation in decades or at least 15 years now. so how harry reid comes down on this and how much he really wants to see this bill, see the light of day is still up in the air a little bit. jon: as i understand it, there are only four republican senators who have, who have signified they will vote in favor of this manchin-toomey amendment? >> yeah. and there is even talk of amending the amendment so it might collect a few more republicans but the problem with doing that is, that if you were to do that you wind up very likely losing, losing votes on the other end. people saying that it is getting watered undo too much or that it is too, that the bill is turning too pro-gun and then you still have the same problem that harry reid and joe manchin, pat toomey have now, which is not enough votes
. the fact is, they held to what they said they would do. they held an election. they created a democracy. the people who won are surprised by the folks. it did not surprise others given the base of the country. they had a democracy. they had an election. it turned over their power and went back to the barracks. they have been an important ingredient to the people of israel. right now, the gauze the piece is holding because of the relationship and the intel to intel relationship. we do not want to lose that. i would love a rigid of love to make an economic effort larger, but as the chairman knows, we work with the chairman, and others, to try to have some component of economic assistance. unless there is economic reform in egypt, unless they can meet the imf standards, unless they reach out to the opposition, unless they create stability and a capacity to invite capital back from other countries, with the sense of security created, unless those things happen, right now, giving more money would actually be not too good avail. >> thank you. >> we go to tulsa of hawaii. presenceyou for your
in boston. we just had a knife attack that maimed 14 people in texas. people were paid and elected on capitol hill talking about gun-control that will do nothing to stem any of this violence. that makes me angry. lou: extraordinarily to my those legislators, everyone to whom the question has been put acknowledges that the universal background check, for example, would not have changed one whit what happened in sandy hook. it is a peculiar time. there seems to be a sense of entitlement on the part of many americans that somehow they don't have to be responsible for themselves and that they have no obligation to protect themselves , families, communities in the face of these horrific threats. >> i think it's very unfortunate that the federal government's and several states are many states following the lead, we are doing things that are nonsensical. the deprive us of autonomy and thinking. my son at logan airport, 11, is not have to take tough issues anymore to go through security. at it as my mom who is just shy of 80. i do. i'm not sure that makes any sense. i also know with all of
spoke oquentthe election. the hispanic community voted 70% minds on the republican side that immigration was a issue that the time has come. that is what we will have a bill because 70% hispanics voted democratic. it is that they had a clearer from howthe fog faded important this issue was to the people in our country. i feel confident about how we go forward on immigration. i commend the eight senators for the work they did. of course it is a compromise. when i change things? of course, but i think that is i think a compromise is about. i am calling them gangs of eight -- the bipartisan team in the house, the have been working on this issue for an long time, and their proposals are very much like what is in the senate. we're pretty happy about the place is. do not get me wrong, it is not a bill i would have written or something that all our members are quick to embrace, because again, it is a compromise. as a compromise, it is the boldest, denominator, the best we can do, and it is very good. again my members will have their concerns about it and their complaints about it because it is

had max baucus democratic senator in swing state up for ere-election why did you vote no one word montana. some of these democrats on the fence people like you have got on the screen right now, they basically say, back home in montana, it's not going to fly. and so right now the president is stuck because he has got a wall of republican opposition but he has also got a handful of democrats. >> bill: is he not getting anywhere on anything. that's that. severing going to stay status quo. on the terrorism front when mr. obama delivers a speech in boston today. that speech is written for him, correct? >> it is. his aides say on air force one as he always does, he starts tinkering with it and tries to get it in his own voice. i think you heard in an important clip there where he got the audience behind him. look, any president's situation like this can rise to the occasion, it's not shocking that when there is something like this he is going to get public support for it but not every president can sort of hit that high note. i think today as you noted he sort of captured the moment. bu
reelection. my question is you should not be worried about the election. this is too fundamental to go against not only democracy, but denying a vote on the floor of the u.s. senate literally has no justification. >> stephanie: yeah. yeah. literally. the president's press secretary yesterday, jay carney. >> the newtown families are here because their children were murdered. they are asking for the senate to do something that is common sense. >> stephanie: i can't imagine a sadder day for american. the six year olds were blown away at point-blank range, and the united states congress woman who was shot in the face and we can't even get enough democrats to vote for this? where are we politically in america and where do we go from here? >> you may hear from my tone that i'm a little bit of horse. this is a different reaction than i usually have. i write a column purple nation where i try to look at things both ways. i am somewhat astonished but i see no nuance on the question to democrats how could you not allow a vote on this? and i want those names, and they may be f
. this is hundred percent politics 100 percent midterm elections. it's about making republicans out to be the bad guys. there is a proposed legislation, i talked about this on my radio show and i found articles like this one from february 28, rick cline an obama supporter, pointing out that the republicans offered obama the keys to undo all of this, to soften the blow, make sure the money we cut was quality of life improvement programs. he is has decided to inflict as much pain as possible on the american people for a purely political reasons. >> megyn: leslie? >> how much time do i have. i am touched that you and fellow republicans are so concerned about my traveling from l.a. to orlando with two toddlers tomorrow with an additional two and a half hour delay. thank you. i know how concerned you are. no, chris, you guys had an opportunity when you talk about opportunities to sit down and not even have the sequester happen. do you remember when the president listed all the areas that would be affected with cuts one of which was air traffic control. you also remember republicans saying at that time
hispanic voters into the election threat which if history is any indicator would be a good threupbg fo thing for democrats. joe trippi a former howard dean campaign manager and fox news contributor. do you believe the immigration bill on balance would be a bigger net benefit to democratic politicians? >> i think it will benefit both parties. one of the problems that the republicans have had is that their opposition to immigration reform to reaching a compromise has really hurt them in the latino and hispanic communities. it's one of the reasons that after george bush got 4 4% of their votes in 2008 -- swore, excus2004, excuse me. the hispanic support has been declining nationwide. finding a compromise would help republicans start to talk to hispanics. they are much morey lidge justly -- they are a very religious community. there are tkpwrourpbdz on values and other things that republic republicans could talk to the hispanic community and actually start winning their votes again as george bush had reached out to them. in the very beginning as the people become citizens and are eligible
been one where there has been a lot of uncertainty. part of that by our election and the changing government in china. and part of it uncertainty by what's going on in europe. as these things settle out. as china gets more secure in its path forward based on government change, as we continue to make progress in this country towards our issues, i think you will see that confidence build. industrial production only 1% in the first quarter. it's predicted to be 2.5% of the year. auto builds down 1% in the u.s. i'm sorry. down 1% in the world in the first quarter. supposed to be up 2% for the year. so i think there's a belief that 2013 is going to strengthen with each quarter as we go through it. >> ellen, thank you very much for joining us today. >> great. it's a pleasure. thank you, becky. >>> when we come back, apple trying to turn things around after a tough winter. up next, we will get a preview from analyst paul meeks. revolutionizing an industry can be a tough act to follow, but at xerox we've embraced a new role. working behind the scenes to provide companies with services...
